You’re probably having a good day, and that’s why I don’t want to be the one to tell you this. But, well, here we go:

BioShock Infinite is not coming out this year. October? Fuhgetta ‘bout it. OXM says that BioShock Infinite will instead be yours on February 26, 2013.

But listen, it’s not that bad. Here’s what Ken Levine said in a personal message to fans: “I won’t kid you: BioShock Infinite is a very big game, and we’re doing things that no one has ever done in a first-person shooter. We had a similar experience with the original BioShock, which was delayed several months as our original ship date drew near. Why? Because the Big Daddies weren’t the Big Daddies you’ve since come to know and love. Because Andrew Ryan’s golf club didn’t have exactly the right swing. Because Rapture needed one more coat of grimy Art Deco.

“The same principle now applies to BioShock Infinite.”

See? BioShock Infinite just needs a little more time in the shop to become even better. Just like the first BioShock. And you loved the first BioShock, right?

So don’t be sad that BioShock Infinite isn’t coming out this year. And don’t be sad that you won’t see it at E3 in a month. Be happy that you’ll be getting the best game Irrational can make.
